Summary
Traces the history of the CIA, drawing on thousands of documents to explore how the agency was created, why it has so often failed in its missions, how it is viewed by Americans and the rest of the world, and other related topics
Summary
This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For sixty years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation while never disclosing its blunders to the American public. Now a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter uses the CIA's own archives to reveal the CIA as a deeply flawed organization
